Taraji shines in What Men Want.

HOLLYWOOD — Ladies, do you often fantasize about owning the propensity to infiltrate male thoughts? Are you sick of glass ceilings? Do you seek gender equality at your job? If so, you may want to check out Adam Shankman’s romantic comedy “What Men Want” starring Taraji P. Henson and Tracy Morgan. The synopsis should sound awfully familiar. Realizing she’s been ostracized by a fraternity of male sports agents, Ali Davis (Henson) visits a gypsy then uses telekinetic sound perception to inveigle star athletes. In other words, she can read men’s thoughts.

Ali’s occult adroitness comes in handy because her sexist boss won’t promote her, he often embarrasses her in front of co-workers and he even told her to “stay in your lane.” Shankman’s knock off conception is the inverse of Mel Gibson’s 2000 film “What Women Want.”

If you recall, Mel’s character (Nick Marshall) obtained the capacity to peruse the minds of women. Now viewers get a chance to experience the feminal side. Taraji is joined onscreen by a prominent coterie of recognizable sports figures that includes Shaquille O’Neal, Mark Cuban and Grant Hill.

Are you a fan of Taraji?

  1. Do you really want to know what men want? Quit effing with us, cut out the head games, comparing us to others, leave us alone to do what we do best w/o criticism, your sage words of advice, nagging and complaining and ‘How come you can’t be like ______?’ There that pretty much covers it ………….. for now.

  2. This is proof that women absolutely do not understand what men want.

  3. So the old Mel Gibson Women Want movie has the men look like assholes and the new Guys Want movie is the opposite except men still look like assholes. Color me surprised.

  4. I’m so ready to watch this

  5. I got to give it to them. They took a crappy movie and made it even crappier. My prediction: it bombs worse than Proud Mary.

  6. Chris Sorensen

    They sure love to LOSE MONEY on shit films these days

  7. I like Taraji P. Henson but don’t remember a single good movie she’s in. Where do I like like her from? Castle, the TV show?

  8. Mel Gibson did it better in the 2000 movie “What Women Want” but I guess in the age of the METOO bowel movement what else did you expect from liberal Hollyweird.

  9. that boy on the Internet

    What men want? At the moment I just want my boyfriend to give me a hug.

  10. “What Women Think Men Want.” Fixed it!

  11. If this was what men want, she would have been replaced with beyonce, have no lines, cooking in the kitchen in the first half and in the bedroom the second

  12. Men = bad, rapists, liars. Women = good, victims, truth tellers. That’s exactly what everyone reading this has experienced in their personal lives, right?

  13. We want a sandwich, silence, and an occasional blowjob. That’s it

  14. women would hear my arousal for their bodies, particularly their legs

  15. Well, what men “want” is multi-faceted (as with women: there is no one universal thing), but I can safely say that the one thing that men DON’T want is this movie.

  16. Eric Kruckenberg

    Heres a generic list for what MEN want: (results may vary)
    1: Make more sandwiches
    2: Give more blowjob
    3: Tell us BEFORE we sit down
    4: When its quiet KEEP IT QUIET
    5: When its our day off…that means for everything. Unless its been planned on we don’t wanna do shit

    Ladies, just give up your pussy. That’s what men want.

  18. Everyone out here breaking their damn legs jumping to conclusions. This movie has potential and could really bring to light the problems men face in today’s society; let’s just hope for the best and see what happens.

  19. What men want? Is not nearly interesting enough to make a movie about. Trust me. We wanna fuck beautiful woman and them to stop acting so fucking crazy. This stupid shit’s a rip off.

  20. Jesse Burleson

  24. What black men want?????

    Answer:
    White girls.

  25. My Review of the Movie: 3 out of 5 stars ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
    Some funny laughs, very modern, and overall a nice movie to see…Taraji is great and Erykah Badu does an amazing job as well! However they somewhat missed the entire point of the movie because we still do not know What Men Want. It just seems like this movie was about her listening to the inner thoughts of men in her business world and less about her personal connection with men. I think they missed the mark a little.

  26. I think this would have been better if she was working around mostly black men.

  27. i watched this movie while high and it made no sense

  28. This movie was wack

  29. I’m not really the emotional type, but what men actually want is meaning. They want someone to protect, hug, and care for. A woman’s touch means more to a man than the world. It’s a basic survival aspect. And, as sad as it is, modern women don’t understand that. They’re taught that all men are violent rapists who only want people for their looks. There was nothing in comparison, when it seemed as though my life was falling apart, that my girlfriend gave me a simple pat on the back and said that it’s ok.

  30. Men want :

    Sex
    Less bullshit from women/ wives
    A drink when they get off work
    A decent house/ car
    A job with a male boss
    Kids that listen and use the correct bathroom

    There you go. Now you don’t need to sit through a 2 hr movie written by women about what men want .

  31. What men want: A doggo thats a good boi👌

  32. What men want is for women to stop assuming and over reacting who’s with me

  33. I can appreciate and respect the fact that Taraji wants to try something different but this just a waste of her talent. I wish the movie all the best but I’ll wait for it to come on basic cable
